A year ago actor Ajay Devgn dreamt about his two directorial projects, one is 'Shivaay' which is on its way for a big release and the other is 'Sons of Sardaar' (SOS). While the script for the film is on the mid-way, the actor unveiled the first ever poster of the film on his twitter. He tweeted, "Unveiling @SonsOfSardaar My tribute to Warriors of Saragarhi: A tale of Rage, of Love, of Bravery. #SonsOfSardaar."
While talking to a leading daily, Ajay told some interesting facts about the film. He said, "I run a big enough production company. We can definitely make multiple projects. In fact, why two, we have a third and fourth film also in the pipeline. Yes, I'm currently obsessing over 'Shivaay' that is releasing on October 28, and SOS, the script of which has covered a lot of ground because that will be the next film in which I will be directly involved. I am a proud member of the Punjabi community and the Saragarhi war touched a chord. It epitomised the strength and valour of the Sikh community. I salute the 21 Sikhs who were the heroes of this mission and I want to show their bravery on screen."
He continued saying, "I shared earlier that I want this project to have the scale of an international epic. Actually, I want it to be one of the biggest films that comes from India. Hence, the prep and the research is extensive. The budget runs into hundreds of crores. So, we have to ensure our preparation is detailed and perfect. When you are taking a chapter from history, that too, one which is a war epic, you have to go through the script a hundred times over with a fine-tooth comb. For me, SOS is not just an ambitious film, it is also a sentimental one. I have been fascinated and moved when I read about the Battle of Saragarhi. I have always secretly saluted the Sikhs who participated in it. But I feel I will be doing full justice to them only when I bring their story alive on screen."
The script of the film is almost ready and Ajay has his dream cast in the mind.
